»» Why investing in pre-construction condos is best before the general public launch or when the developer really needs to sell a few condos to get their construction financing.

Laurent Felix | Rogers TV “Toronto Speaks Real Estate“
Laurent Felix is a Realtor committed to bringing a fresh and thoughtful approach to the at times intimidating but yet exciting world of Real Estate within our City. Having been exposed at a very early age to his father buying, fixing and “flipping” properties before the word even existed, he quickly developed a taste for what Real Estate could represent to anyone’s bottom line. As a result, the importance of purchasing Real Estate properly never gets lost in his dealings with people … be it is for the enjoyment of a principal residence, or the investment product it can represent to your financial portfolio.
With Toronto Speaks, Laurent hopes to engage the audience in many topics of conversation that both exposes and simplifies the various aspects of our Toronto Real Estate industry.
